After you go over the river and through the woods it just looks like a complicated way to have a slapper bar that only works in one direction. The main leaf still has to transmit the force from the tire patch to the front spring perch.

2. Is there bite magic in the CalTracs pivoting front mount versus a fixed front mount where say the front spring eye bolt was twice as ling and went through the front eye of the traction bar. Again, I was told the CalTracs pivoting mount is just a way to get a bit of compliance in the setup, as the traction bar and the spring move in different arcs and a fixed mount bar will bind.
I've run both types with some success, but would like to understand the theories involved.
thnx, jack vines
